A tweet on NVIDIA's Twitter account reveals that the company's first DirectX 11 compliant consumer graphics products will be named GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470, against popular opinion that they could make for the GeForce GTX 300 series. The most likely reason for this could be that the company has released mobile graphics products under the GeForce GT 3xx series which are based on its GT21x series GPUs which are DirectX 10.1 compliant. It would be hence easier to make out that DirectX 11 products start in the 400 series.

I can honestly care less what/how they name the damn things, all I'd like to know is when Fermi is going to be released and what the prices will be.

I feel the same, a name is just a name, but I bet my pants we are going to see many complaints about this.

And it's ironic since the same pleople that's going to complain about this complained about the GeForce 310. Remember this because it's one of the very few predictions that always become true. :laugh:

Don't worry, I'm sure it will be called another 2 names at least before it goes legitimately EOL and not just lurking around under some other moniker.


On another note; I'm also sure the card will be great but the price will remain high (too high), classic nVidia ploys to reel in those fanbois @ $700 a pop. :nutkick:

that makes sense.

2 series = DX10
3 series = DX10.1

Hmm, weird that they didn't leave room in between those two, so they much be really high end both. GTX 460 comes later then and GTX 440 might be the new 8800GT next Christmas.

Though GTX 440/460 would sound too much like MX 440/460 (http://www.nvidia.com/page/geforce4mx.html) that were the first renames of NVIDIA (that I remember). Geforce2 sold as 4, funny times :)

so the 300 series will all be OEM rebrands like the GeForce 100 series was?
Might be. Starting to sound like they will skip 500 series too and go for GTX 600 vs HD 6000.
Even numbers for consumers and odd numbers for OEM. Though it's NVIDIA, wouldn't surprise me if they ditch the whole 3 digit concept on next generation :D

Anyhow, more info is good. Now we have a name, all we need is cards. Sooner these are out the sooner we can expect the mainstream selection, that will be more interesting to most.

Actually there's already a GTX360M and etc, and they're not even Dx10.1 capable... Just higher clocked G92 cores

Linkie: http://www.guru3d.com/news/nvidia-qu...0-mobile-gpus/
According to the link the gtx 260 M performs better than the gts 360 M .. yes, gtx and gts but still VERY illogical IMO!!:wtf:

Can't wait to see some prices on fermi though :)

on the bright side they changed the name before it was released rather than after. but really whoever's marketign the mobile gpu's need to be fired, creating unnecessary confusion.


edit: and seriously a tweet? absolutely moronic way of announcing product changes.
